Harry and Izzy's - Review

Harry and Izzy's - Dude Grade: B
Indianapolis Airport
Indianapolis, IN

I was looking for a place to watch the Jets/Pats game at the Indy Airport and one of my buddies mentioned Harry and Izzy's is the perfect place. Harry and Izzy's is the more casual sibling to St Elmo's which is generally considered the best steakhouse in the city. I didn't expect much from this place as I was eating in the airport, but I was actually happily surprised - bartender was very attentive and friendly. Pretty tasty stuff and a great place to grab a bite to eat while waiting for your flight. Definitely recommended.

Our Menu

Izzy Plate (comes with all of the below)
3 Piece Shrimp Cocktail *
Meaty shrimp that was cooked perfectly. This thing is drenched in this cocktail sauce that's spiked with a ton of horseradish. Locals seem to love this stuff, but I could only handle a teeny bit - it really kills all flavor of shrimp.

Pork Slider *, Filet Slider **, and Caesar Salad
Pork slider reminded of tonkatsu (fried pork) which was pretty fun. The big winner for me was the filet slider which was basically filet mignon cut into a square so it would fit into a bun. It worked out so well as the texture was perfectly melt in your mouth which worked well with the bun. Also, the flavor of the filet was just beefy enough. Nothing to write home about for the Caesar.
